By the time Amelia woke up, it was already afternoon.

She didn't know if it was just her long nap or if it was the porridge she had that noon but she felt so frail and weak. She looked around and quickly realized that she had been sleeping in Lucian's room. She got out of bed right away and didn't come out until she was sure that Lucian wasn't there.

"Are you awake, Mrs. Amelia?" a kind voice suddenly asked making the already sweating Amelia jump back.

The girl was around 17 or 18 years old. Amelia didn't like how she was referred to, still she just nodded politely.

"Who are you?" She knew that Lucian lived here alone. Even Darren only dropped by every now and then.

"My name is Lily Gu. I'm 18. Mr. Lucian asked me to take care of you," Lily said with a sweet smile. Then she added, "Wow, you're so beautiful!"

Really? She was pale and her hair was a mess so she really didn't know how honest Lily was being.

"I... Call me Amelia." She really didn't like being called Mrs. Amelia.

"Unfortunately, I can't do that. We're servants of the Zhan family and we have to follow the rules of the Zhan family. I have to call you Mrs. Amelia." With a serious look on her face, Lily said nervously, "Mrs. Amelia, before Mr. Lucian left which was just a while ago, he asked me to cook you some chicken soup. He said that I have to watch you eat to make sure that you finish it."

Her voice trailed off in the end.

Wow, Lucian was a really good actor. It seemed as if he was genuinely worried about her that he had to hire another person to specifically look after her.

But she was indeed feeling a little hungry and Lily had already cooked chicken soup... So why not?

When she'd finished eating, she was completely satisfied. She then glanced at her watch and wondered why Lucian wasn't home yet. She stopped herself right away and she had to remind herself that she shouldn't care anyway.

Amelia rubbed her forehead to console herself. She could tell something was wrong with her because she just couldn't stop thinking about Lucian!

Lily meanwhile did a lot of other housework. Amelia had never had someone else take care of her so she didn't really know what to do. She then recalled what Fannie said and reminded herself that she shouldn't get used to this type of treatment.

Amelia didn't plan to take a penny of the Zhan family so she thought she shouldn't be treated like this. She then decided to just wait for Lucian to come home so she could talk about it with him.

Amelia spent her evening watching TV. Around ten, she saw that Lily had been standing next to her. She asked her to sit next to her but Lily declined. She didn't know what to do since she couldn't tell her to go to bed early because Lucian wasn't home yet.

"I need to talk to Lucian so you can go rest now. If he's still hungry, I can cook something up for him," Amelia said.

"Wow! Mrs. Amelia, that's so generous of you!" There was a glimmer of joy in Lily's eyes. She decided that she liked Amelia. "Before I came here, I thought you'd be mean. I didn't expect you to be so nice! I'm so lucky!"

Amelia never really knew how to take compliments. Unsure how to respond, she just flashed her an awkward smile.

After Lily went to bed, she was left alone in the living room. Only the noise coming from the TV could be heard.

"Slow down, Mr. Lucian." By the time it was midnight, Amelia had already dozed off. She was immediately awoken by the sound of the door jingling. She stood up only to find Eric, Lucian's assistant, trying to hold Lucian up.

Amelia hurried over and the first thing she noticed was the heavy smell of wine. She looked at Lucian. His eyes were closed and he was obviously drunk as he couldn't even hold himself up.

"Mrs. Amelia, Mr. Lucian drank too much tonight so I took him home myself," Eric explained as they helped Lucian get to his bedroom.

"Thank you," Amelia replied politely.

"You're welcome, Mrs. Amelia. Here's my phone number. Feel free to call me if you need anything." Eric handed Amelia his business card and added, "Mr. Lucian seemed to have something on his mind tonight. He usually isn't like this. This is the first time I've seen him drunk. Thank you for taking care of him, Mrs. Amelia."

"Okay," Amelia muttered as she glanced at the drunk Lucian who was lying in the bed.

After Eric left, the room fell into silence again.

The stench of alcohol was lingering in the room. Amelia decided to get some honey water for Lucian. She had to nudge him carefully to wake him up. She said in a low voice, "Get up. Drink this honey water before you sleep."

However, Lucian didn't move.

Amelia placed the glass on the nightstand. She got up to get a warm towel to wash his face with but just as she turned, she sudden

ly heard a retching sound coupled with an awful smell.

Amelia turned only to find Lucian on the edge of the bed with some vomit dripping around his lips.

She frowned but still helped Lucian lie down properly on the bed. She then headed to the bathroom to fetch a basin of hot water to clean him up.

When she'd cleaned everything up, she feared that Lucian would vomit again so she grabbed a small stool and sat by the bed to watch over him.

Luckily, she had a big nap that afternoon or else she'd be asleep by now.

The rest of the night was uneventful. Lucian didn't vomit anymore and he slept through the night.

Amelia's head was aching. She stretched out her body and fell asleep on the edge of the bed.

Suddenly, Lucian jolted awake. He slowly opened his eyes and was relieved to find that he was in his own room. He paused as he scanned the room. 'What is she doing here?' he wondered to himself.

He knew that he had drunk a lot and the alcohol he was drinking was pretty strong. However, he couldn't remember anything after Eric had driven him back.

'Did Amelia sleep here? Was she looking after me as I slept?'

Lucian suddenly felt his heart beating a mile a minute and it took a while before he was able to calm himself down.

"Come on, let's get you to the bed." Lucian got up and intended to pick up Amelia and place her on the bed.

Amelia was in a daze. While she did hear a voice, she was too tired to realize what was happening. She just opened her eyes and stood up as asked and immediately fell on the bed without even looking to see who the person was.

Lucian was leaning over Amelia in a rather intimate position.

Amelia bit her lips hard and her skin was as white as milk.

She was so fair... Her lips were red like strawberries. As Lucian gazed at it, he felt his heart skip a bit. He could feel a tingle run through his body as he leaned over Amelia. He snapped back to his senses when he heard a knock on the door.

Lucian tucked Amelia in and went to open the door.

It was Lily who had already prepared breakfast. She said in a respectful tone, "Mr. Lucian, Mrs. Amelia was waiting up for you last night. I cooked porridge for your breakfast."

"How long did she wait for me?" Lucian asked as he looked at Amelia in surprise.

"Quite a while. She's so kind. She was worried about me asking if I was tired and offered to help me. She also asked me to go to bed early while she waited up for you. I went to bed early last night so she was alone in the living room as she waited for you," Lily said kindly, she was speaking so highly of Amelia which said a lot about Amelia's character.

"All right. I'll take the breakfast." After he took the tray, he said, "Please cook some soup. I'll call you when Amelia wakes up."

"Okay." Lily then added, "Mr. Lucian, Mrs. Amelia seems like a great match for you. You're young and hardworking and Mrs. Amelia is just so considerate. You guys are the perfect couple!"

"You can go back to work now." Lucian's face was unreadable but his heart was restless.

While he knew that Lily only meant well with what she said, he didn't know what to make of it.

He put the breakfast on the table and walked to the bed, staring at Amelia thoughtfully.

When Amelia woke up, Lucian was sitting on the sofa, sorting through some documents. He glanced at Amelia, who was looking at him in confusion, and a smile appeared on his face. However, it was gone as soon as it came as if he'd realized that he was smiling and he didn't like that.

Amelia looked out of the window and realized that she had slept in Lucian's bed. She jumped up and ran toward him. Upon seeing Lucian, she retreated a few steps. "What are you doing here?" she asked in a panic.

This wasn't her bed so Amelia wondered why she had slept on his bed.

Amelia looked down to check her clothes and skim the room. She was relieved to find that Lucian's coat was still on the leather chair where she had placed it the previous night as well as the sweater that went along with it. Still, she felt nervous as she glanced at Lucian. She was always suspicious of Lucian especially that he was drunk last night. So why did she sleep on his bed?

After a while, she heard Lucian's faint voice. "Are you awake? You hungry? Lily made some chicken soup for you. Eat."

She felt like the words just went her other ear. She remained silent for a while, staring at Lucian and seemingly in a daze. She managed to choke out, "I... I'm leaving now."

Lucian noticed how frozen she was in her spot and how nervous she was probably by his cold demeanor. He shifted his tone to a softer one as he spoke, "Lily told me that you waited up for me last night."

Amelia did wait up for him but it's not like that meant anything significant.
